ArtCon hands over the dough to this year’s beneficiary, Today Marks the Beginning.

ArtConspiracy threw a large thank-you party for its volunteers last night at the Double Wide. Lots of fun had by all, but especially by Today Marks the Beginning, which officially got its check for $30,000 from the event’s proceeds.

“Can we do this again next year?”  asked Karen Blessen, co-founder of the group. The donation is the largest single gift that TMTB has received.

Well, yes, but next year will be a different beneficiary. And ArtCon will choose who that might be this Spring.
